Morning, depart your hotel for a 2.5 hours drive passing through oil palm plantations, secondary forest, picturesque countryside and Batu Niah – a small inland town. Proceed to the park headquarters, then by boat to cross the Niah River, followed by a 45 minutes walk on a raised plank-walk (3km long) which snakes through a lush rainforest to reach the Niah Cave entrance. Explore this famous cave system, archaeological sites and primitive hematite paintings on the walls. Observe the bewildering and dangerous manoeuvres of bird-nest collectors climbing flimsy scaffoldings and wooden poles to reach the dark crevasses of the caves to collect the nest during the harvesting season. After lunch, return to Miri and transfer back to your hotel. (Lunch included)
